Join #MFRWAuthor @KimHeadlee at NRCC Comic-Con and Preorder THE BUSINESS OF WRITING!

The final personal appearance for me this month will occur at the New River Community College Comic-Con, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday 10/29/16 in Dublin, Virginia. 
I will be presenting my Business of Writing workshop in addition to signing & selling my books.
I hope to see you there! 

Preorder The Business of Writing:
Practical Insights for Independent, Hybrid,
and Traditionally Published Authors
by Kim Iverson Headlee today!
Now I interrupt this regularly scheduled installment of Raging Sea to bring you the following very special announcement:

The Business of Writing is available for


Have you written a book but don’t know how to go about getting it published?

Have you published a book but need advice distributing it to more sales channels?

Are you hunting for more ways to improve your bottom line?

The Business of Writing: Practical Insights for Independent, Hybrid, and Traditionally Published Authors is aimed at everyone wishing to start—or jump-start—their writing careers.

Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, discover the answers to such questions as:
  • Do I really need to incorporate, what “flavor” of company should I set up, and how do I take the plunge?
  • How do I manage my writing expenses and taxes?
  • What is an ISBN, where do I get one, and how many will I need?
  • What is an imprint and how do I establish one for my books?
  • What decisions must I face in the prepublication phase?
  • Do I need to register my book’s copyright and how do I accomplish it? What about using other copyrighted materials?
  • How on earth do I condense my 100K-word book to a 300-word description, let alone a 20-word tagline?
  • How do I select the best keywords for my book?
  • What makes for a great cover and how can I get one?
  • What do I need to know about book formatting—print as well as digital?
  • How can I turn my book into an audiobook?
  • How do I develop and refine my author brand?
  • How can I land invitations to speak at conferences and conventions?
  • I use several pseudonymns. How do I manage them all?
  • What’s an ARC? A media kit? A book trailer? A blog tour?
  • Do I really need to start a blog? Send out a newsletter? Dive into social media? Give away my books?
  • How do I price my book? Should I pick one price or vary it? Where are the best places to advertise my sale events?
  • How much is all of this going to cost me??
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the publication and promotion process, let award-winning, critically acclaimed author Kim Iverson Headlee give you the practical wisdom you need to stay on task and perhaps even come out ahead.
